International Psychohistorical Association's 44th Annual Conference

IDENTITY AND CONFLICT IN HISTORY, CULTURE AND SOCIETY

May 19-21, 2021 at New York University
Cosponsored by the Object Relations Institute
&
the New York University Silver School of Social Work


The world is experiencing historic levels of ideological, racial, class, caste, health, ecological and domestic conflicts.  Conflict, in its various enactments, dominates our media, politics, and communities. Join us for IPA's 44th annual conference as we psychohistorically explore conflict, its relation to trauma and identity and constructive and destructive potentialities. 

The International Psychohistorical Association is currently accepting paper proposals for its 44th annual conference to be held May 19-21, 2021.  The conference is planned for both virtual and in-person participation at New York University, conditions permitting.  Interested scholars are invited to submit your proposed presentation title and brief abstract for possible inclusion in the IPA 2021 program.  Papers may focus on the conference theme or other topics pertinent to psychology and history.   Panel suggestions are welcome.  Typical presentations are 45 minutes in length which includes 15 minutes for discussion.  Students are encouraged to submit proposals for student panels.

Due date for proposals: December 31, 2020
Please submit paper proposals to IPA conference chairs Theresa Aiello at  [email protected] or Denis O'Keefe at [email protected].

Societal Divisions and Narcissistic Leaders.  He has written hundreds of published papers and book chapters and has served on the editorial boards of sixteen national or international professional journals, including The Journal of the American Psychoanalytic Association. Volkan is the founding editor of the journal Mind & Human Interaction, which examines the relationship between psychoanalysis and history, political science, and other fields.
